LineageOS has been the most popular custom ROM ever since Cyanogenmod was discontinued. The custom ROM has added more than 150 devices to its build roster and is continuing to add new devices as well as features to its ROM every week. The LineageOS project is not being funded by any organization neither are the developers working behind the ROM working full-time so the device builds are released on a weekly basis and not on a nightly basis which was the case for Cyanogenmod. LineageOS has released their “Week in Review” post to let the users know about the happenings at LineageOS in the past week.
One major change is that LineageOS has added support for Android 7.1.2 Nougat, which is a maintenance release on top of Android 7.1.1 Nougat. All the devices running LineageOS ROMs or ROMs supported by LineageOS will be updated to Android 7.1.2 Nougat in the latest builds. One thing to note is that LineageOS builds starting April 14th will be based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat. Also worth noting is that apart from Android 7.1.2 Nougat, these builds will have the latest April security update patches.
LineageOS has also added some more devices to its ever-groeing build roster which now includes:
- HTC M9 (GSM)
- HTC M9 (Verizon)
- Letv LeEco Le 2 (International)
- Letv LeEco LePro3
- LG L90
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 LTE (Sprint)
- Yu Yuphoria
- Yu Yureka
One more important update is that the LineageOS 14.1 builds for Nextbit Robin have been removed due to some ‘major bugs’. LineageOS team has also announced that they will now be accepting donations, currently they are only accepting Bitcoins but they will be adding Paypal donation support soon.
